It looks like I'll be able to participate in the Readathon this time. If you are unfamiliar with Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon, you can find out more about it on the official blog. This will be my third time participating (I think, don't hold me to that) and it's always a lot of fun.
Michelle at Galleysmith is holding a Slumber Party for the Readathon. What a good idea! Not sure if I can stay up all night. I'd be the first one with shaving cream in her face or bra in the freezer. I just can't stay up with I used to. Oh well, I'll try my best.
So what will I read? I'm trying to stick with shorter books this time.
Jamaica Inn by Daphne DuMaurier: I think a good suspense will keep me up.
Rises In the Night by Colleen Gleason: Vampires always succeed in keeping me awake.
Gourmet Rhapsody by Muriel Barbery: I haven't read The Elegance of the Hedgehog. I hope I won't be lost when I read this companion piece.
Confections of a Closet Baker by Gesine Bullock-Prado: Sensing a theme here? It sounds delicious.
Sum by David Eagelman: A book on the afterlife might not be light but it's very short.
Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger: Not short but I'm sure I'll be hooked on this one!
We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson (Not pictured): I love Shirley Jackson and have this one on the RIP Challenge list. I don't think I can go wrong with this one.
I'm also planning on picking up an audiobook for those times when a book in my hand isn't practical or I want to rest my eyes.
